BOUSTEAD Properties Bhd has collaborated with FRIM Inc Sdn Bhd to conserve and preserve a 2.1km river park for its township Mutiara Hills in Semenyih, Selangor.
This partnership is in tandem with Boustead Properties’ commitment to environment, social and governance (ESG) as well as the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
The signing ceremony was held at the developer’s Green Carnival event at Mutiara Hills and was attended by Boustead Properties CEO Khairul Azizi Ismail and COO Eason Phan while from FRIM’s side was its CEO Wan Jusaini Rizal and project lead Dr Ahmad Nazarad.
According to Khairul Azizi, the river park and green certification are testaments to how the company builds sustainable real estate by upholding ESG values.
“As a responsible developer, we can minimise the negative impact on the environment, while allowing our developments and communities to thrive to their fullest.
“We will continue to explore and harness various sources of renewable energy to achieve a near-zero carbon development with smart mobility, efficient water management system and other environment-friendly features to promote liveability,” he said in a statement.
Boustead Properties’ senior management has also carried out a tree-planting activity alongside FRIM and GreenRE Sdn Bhd to reflect their joint efforts in creating a sustainable green living.
Moreover, those who attended the Green Carnival were also able to participate in different activities such as a terrarium workshop, nursery plant showcase and kite-flying, among others.
“The Green Carnival was aimed at showcasing the importance of the environment and community in our flagship township development in Semenyih.
“By emphasising ESG values, it allowed us to depict the foundation of the Mutiara Hills development which embodies protecting the environment, promoting mobility and nurturing community engagement,” Khairul Azizi added.
The 1,200-acre (485.62ha) smart, integrated township Mutiara Hills consists of residential, commercial and retail properties, and is easily accessible to educational and medical facilities and major highways.
GreenRE ED Ashwin Thurairajah has also awarded the project with a GreenRE certification for prioritising the importance of sustainability and eco-friendly principles in its design and construction.
